lyrics

Am I really experiencing this?
I remind myself with a clenched fist.
The clouds they clot my vision.
This reality is nothing but indecision.

I’m awake, is this really happening?
I think, therefore I am.
I’m awake, is this really happening?
I must be, cause this quesadilla just taste so good.

The days they move through fragments and phrases.
While everything I do can slip through this haze.
Moments of clarity interject,
While I just leave everything else unchecked.

I’m awake, is this really happening?
I think, therefore I am.
I’m awake, is this really happening?
I must be, cause this Baja Blast just tastes so good.

According to the Greek Sophist Gorgias in On Non-Being:
The non-existent does not exists in so far as it is non-exists, it exists or is. The existent does not exist either. If the existent exists it is either eternal, created, or both created and eternal. If it is eternal then it has no beginning. If it has no beginning, then it is infinite. If it is infinite, it is nowhere. If it is anywhere, then it can’t be spatially infinite. If it can’t be anywhere, it cannot exist. If it is created then it has been created out of the existent or the non-existent. It can’t be created from the existent because the existent doesn’t yet exist. It can’t be created from the non-existent because the non-existent can’t create anything. The eternal and created cancel each other out. Neither the non-existent nor the existent exist.

A moment can blow by or last forever
Or this might not even be a real endeavor.
They say that this might be subjective.
Does it reside in my mind or in the objective?

I’m awake, is this really happening?
I think, therefore I am.
I’m awake, is this really happening?
I must be, cause this Taco Bell tastes so fucking good.

about

Nora Nygard Minneapolis, Minnesota

I've always been searching. Drumming in punk bands. Singing into a cassette mic alone. Trans angst, alienation, going on the road. Synthesis, tape, poetry. Two failed tours, two failed degrees. Reclaiming my voice from the choir, reshaping my voice after punk rock. Years of isolation, hormone therapy, production studies, and hundreds of releases with various projects. ... more
